My daughter-n-law's Bradley tree

I was trying to make a connection to the Milton Bradley family.  As far as I can learn, the game board inventor is not related to this Bradley family, unless it goes way back in England.

Descendants of William BRADLEY

Generation No. 1

1. William1 BRADLEY was born Abt. 1750 in England, and died Feb 05, 1819 in VA. He married Mary Elizabeth WHITMAN Mar 12, 1791.

Notes for William BRADLEY:

I want to thank the researcher's who shared their hard work and efforts online. With census records and other online family trees, I was able to make a connection. Many people work very hard in their research. Some will share and some won't. I cannot put a price on my research. All I know is all my information may not be totally accurate, but I share online and hope when an error is found, someone will contact me so that I may correct it.

Found:

William Bradley born abt 1773 Dorchester, Plymouth Co., MA - This is of interest because there is a 46 year difference in age of William Bradley born 1750 and William Preston Bradley born 1796. Could this be the father of William Preston Bradley and William born 1750 be the grandfather of William Preston Bradley?

William Bradley born Nov 26, 1729 Dorchester, Plymouth Co., MA. - Again, this is of interest because this could be someone related. William Preston Bradley married his wife who was from Bridgewater, Plymouth Co., MA.
